Does Speaking Email use Dragon Dictation?
Speaking Email has voice command recognition and a dictation system which enables you to dictate a reply.
We are not using Dragon Dictation for this purpose, but instead use the native technology provided by your device - from Apple or Google.
Apple recently made available new technology that enables use of the native speech-to-text (speech recognition) system that Siri uses. This makes Speaking Email very good at recognising most accents.
On Android we are using Google for voice recognition. This technology is somewhat variable on the different hardware platforms but has the advantage of working offline and requiring no thrid party installations.
❝I work with an individual who is blind and suffering from carpel tunnel type issues as a result of excessive keyboarding and swiping – reading with your hands takes its toll – and the hands-free features are a great boon to someone with this dual challenge who really needs the opportunity to allow their hands/wrists to rest yet still be able to maintain a high level of productivity (and have some juice left to play the piano when work is done), so thank you.❞
